Boom in the construction industry, ban on asbestos cement products, high efficiency of fiber cement products, and rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing countries drive the fiber cement market growth. In addition, increase in infrastructure investments act as an opportunity for the global market. However, dearth of skilled labor in developing countries is expected to hamper the fiber cement market growth.
Fiber cement products have gained popularity in North America and Asia-Pacific region in the recent years. Homeowners prefer fiber cement siding over vinyl siding, owing to its durability, resistance to termites and water, fire retardant property, and low maintence. Growing interest of consumers towards fiber cement boards, sheets, slates, and other products has created lucrative opportunities for fiber cement industry manufacturers to offer a broad array of differentiated products in darker tones and tural hues.
Increase in adoption of non-asbestos fiber cement products post ban on asbestos products has supplemented the overall growth of the market. Cada, Netherlands, Sri Lanka, and others have focused on elimiting the use of toxic minerals in infrastructure development projects to promote the adoption of eco-friendly cement products. However, growing interests of homeowners and builders towards fiber cement housing & building have led to spiraling growth of vertical siding, molding, trimming, and ceiling. States Smriti Loomba, Research Alyst, Construction, Allied Market Research.
The end users of the fiber cement industry are residential and non-residential sectors. The non-residential sector segment generated the highest revenue in 2014, owing to large-scale installation of fiber cement products for commercial, industrial, and infrastructure projects. However, the residential sector is expected to grow at rapidly during the forecast period, owing to rapid urbanization in the developing tions.
Asia-Pacific was the highest revenue contributor to the global fiber cement market in 2015, and is expected to maintain its position throughout the period. Rapid urbanization and industrialization in the developing countries, such as Chi, India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and others has led to higher adoption of fiber cement products in the region and is likely to boost the fiber cement market size. North America is projected to be the fastest growing region in the world, owing to higher adoption of fiber cement siding as compared to other materials.
Key findings of the Fiber Cement Market
